I was not there when you were born

For I was away for a Church mission

But I was connected with your mom by phone

Today, I am again away and we’re only connected by phone

Yes, I am away but connected, not alone

I was not there when you were born

For I was in the capital with people’s demonstration for alternation

But my comrades were there and looked at you as their own

Now you turned 19 and can maturely manage with our connection

Yes, I am away but connected, not alone

I was not there when you were born

For I was working with the movement for the president’s resignation

Proudly, we named you after the brand of that coalition

You have grown consciously intelligent that I can depend to make own decision

Yes, I am away but connected, not alone

Oh, I was not there too when your brother was born

But I hope you both can understand me and my advocacy for social transformation

As it was and even now, our society has a worsened social and economic situation

My sons, the future is yours to shape for your sons, daughters and the coming generation

Oh, yes, I am away but connected, not alone

Ah, I was not there when you and your brother were born

For I was participating in a quest for the people’s liberation

As it is, not for us but for our sons and daughters is the project for social emancipation

My sons, be firm and sincerely and conscientiously consider to take your option

Ah, yes, I am away but connected, not alone
